Performance in RPG
The Radeon HD 4670 is as fast as the GeForce 9600 GT but has a higher bottom speed at resolutions above 1280x1024. However, this is the only resolution you can play the game more or less comfortably at because the bottom speed of both cards is below 25fps even then. Anyway, the results are good, especially for the ATI solution, which is somewhat cheaper. The GeForce 9500 GT 256MB, which costs the same money, is even worse in this test.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
The game loses much of its visual appeal without HDR. Although some gamers argue that point, we think TES IV looks best with enabled FP HDR and test it in this mode.
Theoretically, the Radeon HD 4670 was supposed to be slower than the GeForce 9600 GT in open scenes and faster in closed environments, but we see just the opposite in practice: the texture-mapping and rasterization subsystems of the RV730 show their best here. However, we can note that the Radeon HD 4670 has a rather low bottom speed in the open scenes, which may be due to the small amount of raster back-ends. Anyway, the new card from ATI is certainly better than the GeForce 9500 GT 256MB.
